However it can't be an outright robbery, either both sides need to be on the same page to do a good acting job or the fight has to be close.
You're absolutely right about arum. That's why Floyd needs to dominate. Emanuel Stewart would constantly talk about how Floyd needs to stop bull****** and get dudes out of there when he has the chance. Shooting pot shots and dancing all night is not gonna get her done this time.
If you look at the score cards for Floyd's more recent fights, they have become closer and closer. There were two judges that scored a draw in the Canelo fight and first Maidana fight. Canelo did not win a single rounds in my book, but even the other two judges had it close 116-112 and 117-111. In both Maidana fights, all of the cards were much closer than they should have been. In the Guerrero fight, the cards were all 117-111. Yet the cards for the Cotto fight looked almost the same, with the exception of one judge scoring it 118-110. Guerrero only won one round, Cotto won 3 or 4. The cards for the Mosley fight were 119-109 and 118-110, which is about right because I had Shane winning two rounds. Overall it looks like Floyd's style has become less and less judge-friendly.
